The University of Vermont Libraries proudly participated in Open Access Week (October 19 – 25) with an introduction to faculty self-submission features in ScholarWorks @ UVM, our new resource to preserve and provide access to UVM’s scholarly and creative work.
What is ScholarWorks @ UVM?
ScholarWorks @ UVM serves as the institutional repository of the University and provides an open access venue for faculty and student research. Launched in October 2013, it has grown to include over twenty collections such as public health projects, historic botanical research, occasional papers on Vermont policy, student dissertations and theses and open access journal projects. With ScholarWorks, UVM joins most major research institutions in providing an institutional repository where faculty can deposit their work.
Why deposit research in ScholarWorks @ UVM?
ScholarWorks @ UVM is a great place to share pre-prints, publications and “gray literature” such as grant reports, white papers, technical reports, conference presentations, posters and unpublished writings.
• increase discoverability of your scholarship
• provide you with additional metrics for use in the RPT process
• help you meet public access funding requirements
• bring scholarship to researchers and practitioners in lower-income institutions and countries
How do I submit research?
What is Open Access?
Open access is a growing international movement that uses the Internet to throw open the locked doors that once hid knowledge. Encouraging the unrestricted sharing of research results with everyone, the open access movement is gaining momentum as libraries, higher education institutions, research funders and policy makers put their weight behind it.
